Little Foodies: Queen City Cotton Candy

Queen City Cotton Candy has hit the scene and brings along the most vibrant, delicious cotton candy treats and mobile cart.

One of the best perks of living near the city is the many markets and fleas, collaborating with hundreds of local makers, artists, bakers, and craftsmen. From Dayton to Cincinnati, our cities are full of hidden talents with the most creative niches.

Move over traditional cotton-candy-on-a-stick vendors! Queen City Cotton Candy owner and operator, Amber Sporleder, has elevated all of our tasty cotton candy dreams. With cotton candy cupcakes, cakes, tubbed or bagged treats, customizable favors and a rentable mobile cotton candy cart, this shop has pulled out all the stops for a non-traditional party treat!

Made with no cake at all, cotton candy cakes might be our favorite trend to start off 2022. A creative way to avoid dietary restrictions of gluten and dairy, what kiddo doesn’t love biting into a fluffy, flavorful sugary snack? Although beautifully aesthetic, cotton candy cakes do not do well in heat and are reserved for cooler months. Plan ahead for another year of Super Bowl-bound Bengals with last year’s deliciously orange Bengals cotton candy cake.

With a season packed full of markets and events, Queen City Cotton Candy can be found all over the city. As part of the TRADE pop up program at Newport on the Levee, Sporleder will be returning for a second season to sling cotton candy in the shared studio space through July 14, 2022. Follow along on Instagram for updates on pop up locations including the OFF Market and City Flea.

Not just for the kiddos, adults can reserve the mobile cart for work events, bridal parties, baby showers and every other event that could use a colorful, tasty treat. Mobile cart rentals include one hour of freshly made cotton candy. Made to order, your choice of flavors include birthday cake, grape, lime, vanilla, blue raspberry, bubblegum, strawberry and more!

Skip the traditional party favors and customize a perfectly quaint cotton candy push pop or sparkle bomb for a treat that every guest will love. Cotton candy has no age limits, the flavors and vibrant colors of Queen City Cotton Candy have brought many compliments from unicorn birthday parties and weddings alike. Wow your guests with cotton candy sparkle bombs, a fluffy ball of sugary goodness filled with edible sparkles inside, a perfect addition to a glass of bubbly or Sprite.

Shopping small with Queen City Cotton Candy comes with big flavors and bright fluff. Whether you’re customizing push pops or stopping by the market cart for some fresh spins, one bite into the Queen City’s own cotton candy will make your heart happy and your taste buds absolutely delighted.
